Reflexology is a form of foot massage therapy. It is both relaxing and used as a therapy for a variety of medical conditions. It is based on the principle that every part of the body is reflected in a precise area of the feet.
How does it work?
Reflexology identifies reflex areas in the feet that are linked to other areas and organs of the body in the same zone. Congestion or tension in any part of the foot is mirrored in the corresponding part of the body. Stress, illness and day-to-day life can cause energy pathways in the body to become blocked and imbalanced which prevents organs and systems from functioning optimally.
Reflexology uses special pressure techniques to stimulate the points on the feet and hand, releasing blockages that can interfere with the body’s natural energy flow. Reflexology is able to treat a wide range of conditions, including stress, headaches, migraine, digestive disorders, and joint-related problems. As well as relieving the symptoms, regular treatment helps to clear the underlying cause of the imbalances, restoring the body’s natural balance and promoting a feeling of relaxation and well-being.
Reflexology is an unobtrusive and gentle therapy, which makes it ideal for all ages and illnesses.
